Field Trip Time!

Allister went to visit Deer Hollow Farm with his class last week.  He has done this field trip before, and was a little disturbed by all the mud and dirt and poop on the farm! This time it didn't bother him so much, thank goodness!

They class got to watch the super cute cow being milked.

They tasted Goats milk.


Learned about Pack Rats and their high nests.

And pet the adorable weeks old baby goats!

And of course the best part, riding on a school bus.

There's a Leprechaun!

One of Harrison's 3rd Grade projects was to make a Leprechaun Trap! Its a really fun project that he totally got into.  After a trip to Michaels for supplies, he created this trap from a shoe box, and he pretty much did it all himself!

Allister turns 7!

What a fine young boy our little Allister is turning out to be!
Allister decided this year he did not want a big party, so we planned a small outing with friends, and it turned out to be just perfect!

We started the day with gifts, he received a COOL Emoji pillow, a bright yellow Pikachu 2DS XL, and a huge pile of money, which he is currently saving.

After early dismissal from school, we picked up 2 friends, Thaddeus and Landon and off we went!

 The birthday fun started with a trip to Mc Donalds (no matter how hard i tried to persuade him otherwise! I guess that's what happens when you tell them there is no Mcdonalds in CA!) Everyone learned all about the "Pink Slime" from Landon on the way there, and still proceeded to eat all their McNuggets! Friends Ethan and Evan joined us too!


Then off we went to Sunnyvale GolfLand for silly crazy golf and fun in the arcade!

We rounded the day off with more bad food and a Zelda Cake!


Until next year!

Harrison has had an AMAZING year in second grade.  It started off a little rough, we were not sure if Mrs K was going to be a good fit, but she ended up being perfect! Harrison has matured a lot since the beginning of the year, his grades have flourished and are now showing how hard he works.
His grades have gone up and up and up and he is now above grade level in math and reading! We are super proud of him :)

Allister loves Boo!
Boo is the cutest dog in the world.
Today Boo got a bath- because he was smelly and not soft. Anyone who know Allister will know that a sort toy HAS to be soft!
After his bath he got a nice brush and was tucked up into bed with a blanket and toy. He also got a bed time story read by Allister! He is now reading and getting better every day!
I will miss the days when Allister no longer plays with his soft toys. It's the sweetest thing ❤️
